Banana Loaf Cake

We have been seeing this banana loaf cake everywhere on social media, and it seems quite easy to make as well! If you have a couple of overripe bananas at home, why not turn them into this perfect WFH (work from home) companion!

Recipe for 2 loaves

  • 450g self-raising flour
  • 340g sugar
  • 340g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 ripe bananas (mashed with a potato masher or a fork)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  1. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add eggs in one at a time, followed by the mashed banana. Continue mixing until fully incorporated. 
  2. Sift the flour into the mixture, stir using a spatula until well mixed. 
  3. Lastly, pour the batter into a baking tin lined with baking paper and bake for 45 mins (160 °C ) or until a skewer comes out clean.


  • If possible, choose overripe bananas as they are the sweetest! 
  • You could add a few teaspoons of milk if the batter is too dry.

Apam Balik

Do you miss your visits to Pasar Malam and grabbing these before heading home? Turns out, you can make it quite easily at home! Here’s how:

Recipe for 7 – 8 Apam Balik

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Ground peanuts (I actually grond my Cap Tangan peanuts and they tasted great!)
  • Canned sweetcorn

To make the batter: Beat eggs and sugar until foamy, then add in the flour, baking powder, and water. Continue to whisk until the mixture is fully incorporated. Set aside for 30 minutes.

To make Apam Balik: Scoop the batter on a hot pan and spread it with the ladle to make it as thin as possible. Once the colour at the edges turn golden brown, spread some grounded peanuts, sugar and sweetcorn (based on personal preference), then fold the Apam Balik into half before serving.

Note: Use a non-stick pan so you won’t need to oil/butter the pan.

A fluffy treat that can be made without an oven! Enjoy these with some butter and maple syrup!

Recipe for 6-7 pancakes

  • 3 eggs (yolk and white separated)
  • 50g sugar
  • 50g all-purpose flour (Sifted)
  • 50g milk
  • Vanilla essence (Optional)
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix egg yolks, flour, and milk together with a whisk. 
  2. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks, then begin adding the sugar, about half portion. Beat until the whites are stiff and glossy, then add the remaining sugar. 
  3. Lastly, gradually fold in the egg white mixture to the yolk mixture until both are well incorporated.
  4. Heat a large non-stick frying over the lowest heat, then brush with cooking oil, scoop the batter and place on the frying pan and let it cook about 1.5 minutes, then flip and cook the other side for the same amount of time.

Note: See video instruction on Social Media:

Tiramisu Malaysian MCO style! There are no rules on how to make this, you can adjust the ingredients as you like them.

Recipe for 6-7 pancakes

  • Cream cheese + condensed milk
  • 3 in 1 coffee
  • Hup Seng Biscuit (or any brand)
  • Coco/Milo powder (Milo is sweet so please adjust accordingly)
  1. Combine cream cheese and condensed milk and set aside.
  2. Brew strong coffee by reducing hot water into half for the 3 in 1 coffee.
  3. Soak the biscuits into the coffee (beware not to make them too soft). Arrange the biscuits in a square container, then spread the cream cheese mixture. Repeat stacking them to the height that you desire.
  4. Put the tiramisu into the fridge to set the shape.
  5. Dust more Milo/Coco powder before serving!

One of the tea time snacks I missed a lot during MCO days are egg tarts and ‘Cham Ping’. So last week, I found a simple recipe online and tried to make my own. The taste is exactly the same as the ones sold at stores.

I have uploaded the ingredients and steps on Kuali, click this link to see full recipes

P.S. I did not brush my molds with butter so the tarts were stuck, make sure you do not repeat my mistake!.
